Description

Mixing first-hand interview and personal insights with critical evaluations of art, plot, production qualities, and literary themes, Helen McCarthy provides a film-by-film appraisal of the man often called "the Walt Disney of Japan." She reveals Miyazaki to be not just a master of the art of animation, but a meticulous craftsman who sees his work as a medium for shaping the humanistic and environmental concerns of our times.

An overview of the artist and his early career is followed by in-depth examinations of seven major Miyazaki films: Nausicaa of the Valley of the Winds, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Castle of Cagliostro, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, Porco Rosso, and Princess Mononoke. Included are design and technical data, story synopses and character sketches, personnel and filmography data, and critical evaluation. Illustrations throughout, in color and black and white, show the detail and vigor of Miyazaki's art.

Helen McCarthy is the former editor of Anime UK and Manga Mania magazines and the co-author of The Anime Encyclopedia. McCarthy lives in London and regularly curates films at the Barbican. She is a recipient of the Japan Festival Award for outstanding contributions to the understanding of Japanese culture.
